got a new place to hunt today, a cut corn field i have been seeing geese in every time i go by in the mornings.
Stopped today and the owner gave permission but said cattle will be in the 40 to 50 acre rectangle shaped field in a week or two.
Will the geese still feed with cattle?
Or should i just chalk up the place for ducks down on the river.
Trying to think back, i cant say i actually remember seeing cattle and geese in the same fields? ???

Can't say I ever paid attention, but I've seen them in the same pasture as goats. FWIW.

Cows will generally push them off, especially if it's a small field like that.

i worked on a ranch in central Washington state and the geese would come in by the thousands to feed among the cattle.

If you can keep the cattle pushed to one side you should be fine

It might be better to hunt the other side, rather than run the cattle, to keep good relations with the farmer.

Yeah, depends on the cattle and the farmer. I don't know much about cattle except that they're big enough to cause a lot of hurt so I avoid them. I've seen cattle do some pretty incomprehensible things even without explosions going off nearby.

On a 50 acre pasture, there is no way that you should be shooting around the cows. I think the farmer was telling you NOT to hunt once the cows were in there.

I have the properties on both sides as well.
Have't seen any geese in there any more. No cattle yet, but wonder why they moved on?
It may be bigger than 50 acres, and he specifically said it was fine to shoot there.
